We are using WSUS3.0 to update our xp clients.  Currently, the group policy settings are automatically downloading and installing updates to client machines, however only administrators are being notified to restart.  What settings need to be in place for non-administrators to be prompted to restart?

setting 3 -- Auto download and notify for install should notify them
setting 4 - Auto download and schedule the install should also notify them that windows will restart.

We have ours set to Auto download and schedule the install.  We have it set at 2am so the patches automatically go out and install.
We also send a  broadcast email sent during patch weekend (or emergency out of band patches if needed)  letting the users know about the maintenance.
Thanks
Mike

I found the setting "Remove access to use all Windows Update features" enabled under the user configuration settings in a different GPO. I set it to not configured and it solved the issue.
